When will opposing baserunners stop challenging Boston Red Sox right fielder Hunter Renfroe?
Renfroe picked up his seventh assist of the season Wednesday as Houston Astros’ Alex Bregman tried to score from second base on a one-hopper to right field hit by Jordan Alvarez.
Renfroe, however, charged the baseball and sent a laser of a throw to Red Sox catcher Christian Vázquez, who caught the throw on a line and had a split second to wait for Bregman at home plate.
Vázquez then applied the tag on a sliding Bregman and Boston got out of Nathan Eovaldi’s first inning on the mound.

Renfroe now has the second most assists in the American League.
